After a busy couple days on the water, most of the boats here at Sunset Marina chose to stay in. However, that doesn’t mean it was quiet on the docks. The ‘Boss Hogg’ trekked out to the Poor Mans and returned with 6 Yellowfin Tuna and 10 Dolphin! The ‘Marli’ and the ‘Absolute Pleasure’ also fished and returned with a few catches as well.

With the first holiday of the season over and the warmer days of summer upon us, we here at Sunset Marina are excited to see what the 2016 season has to bring! Yellowfin Tuna fishing started off great, along with nice gaffer dolphin starting to trickle in as well. Over the weekend we had the first White and Blue Marlin release out of Ocean City along with the successful tuna fishing. Over the past couple days the tuna fishing has slowed with boats not limiting out but still returning with a good haul. This was the case for the crew of the “Marli” who returned from the Washington with 5 yellowfin in the 35-40lb range, 5 nice gaffer dolphin and went 2/3 on white marlin! Now is the time to book a charter because there is a lot of fish and not to many boats fishing. This enhances your opportunity to fight the fish and not the crowds, so make sure you call the marina office today at 410-213-9600 to book with one of our many charters or you can book through our website www.ocsunsetmarina.com. Tight Lines!

The holiday weekend is wrapping up and as it has been for the past couple days the Norfolk Canyon was the hot spot.

With the first White Marlin of the season being caught yesterday, the crew of the “Boss Hogg” followed that up with the first Blue Marlin release!

The Norfolk was the hot spot again with a couple boats limiting out early. The “Marli” ventured back down to the canyon and brought back 24 yellowfin, 1 Bigeye (80lbs) and 1 dolphin. The crew of the “G-Force” hopped in on the action and were rewarded with 24 yellowfin in the box. We saw some nice class of fish today with the majority in the 30-35lb range. It looks like we are going to have a lot of boats knock the dust off and head out to the deep tomorrow so we should have a great report tomorrow night, stay tuned!

Just to start off, we here at Sunset Marina would like to let everyone know we are anticipating a great 2016 season! We will be jammed packed with beautiful boats and the marina will be rocking, as we have to thank our amazing customers for that! With that said, we go into the Memorial Day weekend with some nice weather finally after a rainy and dreary spring. Along with this beautiful weather it looks like fishing will heat up as well. Returning to the docks around 2pm was the crew of the “Marli” with 24 yellowfin in the box. Capt Mark reported a nice piece of water down in the Norfolk with the bite hitting off right with lines in around 8am. They had their limit before 10am so decided to return home for a late lunch! Right behind them was the “Boss Hogg” also having a great day down in the Norfolk returning with 20 yellowfin! The piece of water should be making its way closer to Ocean City so this weekend it’s time to knock the dust off the rods and go fishing! We have plenty of great charter boats available as they can be viewed on our website or you can call the marina office at 410-213-9600 to book while the tuna bite is on!

When is the last time we had weather cooperate this late into November? On 11/25, Tom Over with “Over Billin” took a couple of friends out to a good piece of 72 degree water in the Baltimore and they were rewarded! The crew managed to hook up and catch 5 yellowfins and 10 dolphin to add to their Thanksgiving platter! It looks like a couple of boats are contemplating on whether or not to run out and hop on the action so there might be some more fish hitting the docks tomorrow evening!

As fall continues to progress I think it is safe to say that the offshore fishing is done for the 2015 season. The past couple of weeks we have seen some valiant fishermen try and get one last trip in before the transition to hunting. They have had some luck still picking at the tuna and dolphin along with a couple of wahoo here and there. The report from yesterday was that the fish were far south now past the Norfolk. The “Grande Pez” ventured 109 miles and still had a successful day returning with 3 yellowfin, 32 dolphin and a wahoo. I think it is safe to say this will be the last offshore report until the spring.
This season has been as good as it has been in awhile. We saw a nice class of yellowfin, a tremendous bigeye bite both during the day and night, along with dolphin being plentiful on a day to day basis to make this a charter season to remember. The white marlin bite stayed consistent through August into September but never really hit its peak, but overall fishing was good. What is moral of the story? The 2015 fishing season was fantastic! Hopefully the 2016 season will be just as great as this year!
We are hearing reports that the rockfish are starting to appear up in Northern New Jersey so it wont be long until they are off the beaches of Ocean City! Stay tuned as we will have some pictures this winter of peoples catches!
